Let’s face it. We don’t always have time to wash our hair. Maybe you didn’t hear the alarm clock go off and stayed in bed more than you should, and pheraphs the night before you worked out at the gym and were too exhausted to shampoo your hair when you got home, or you may simple not feel like washing your hair. But you can’t just leave the house with dirty and greasy hair, especially if you have an important date or meeting. So, how can you make your hair look acceptable?
If your hair is dirty, you could just hide it under a bandana, scarf or headband. Any hair accessory that covers your hair or just a part of it will do. No one will notice you didn’t have time to wash your hair and you’ll look stylish too.
2. Style it
If your hair is long enough you can style it in a braid. Did you know that’s it actually easier to braid hair when it is dirty? And it only takes five minutes to do. But if braids ain’t your thing, you can always wear your hair in a ponytail or pin it up in a messy bun. These hairstyles will help disguise dirty hair as well.
3. Use Dry Shampoo
It’s always handy to have a dry shampoo at home for emergencies. They contain ingredients, like cornstarch, that can absorb oil and grease, making your hair look (but not feel) clean. Just apply it on your hair sparingly and brush it off.
4. Do you have light hair? You can try powder too
Cheaper options to dry shampoos are baby powder ot talcum powder. However, these work best on blondes or ladies with lighter-coloured hair. If your hair is dark, the powder could be visible and then you will have to shampoo to get it all out. If you wanna give it a go anyway and see if they work for you, do it when you’re just chilling at home and don’t have to go out so that, if your hair looks white, you’ll have plenty of time to wash it.
